Jersey Shore Creators Target Nerds For Dubious Stardom


Depending on how much you watch the show, Jersey Shore‘s transformation of a few unknown guidos and guidettes into an international fame plague was either the best thing or the worst thing ever to happen to entertainment. Now comes the good (or bad) news that the same company that unearthed Snooki and Pauly D is looking to cast some nerds to undergo a similar metamorphosis for a new series called Fandom Rising. Might this be your opportunity to rocket to the heights (or depths) of MTV notoriety?

If you are a guy or girl and get all the references in The Big Bang Theory, can quote the Original Trilogy, can spot a Cylon among us, wish you could’ve attended Hogwarts, Starfleet Academy, or Xavier’s School for the Gifted, join the horde, and revere masters of science fiction and fantasy we want you!!! We’re looking for those who value brains over brawn, substance over status quo and march to the beat of their own cantina band.

What are you waiting for? This could be your chance to take part in an “experimental documentary series that takes a deeper look at the lives and relationships of people who love fantasy, fiction, cosplay, comics, gaming and science.” And let there be no doubt, given their proven track record with such rich characters as JWoww and The Situation, that this show will spend hours dwelling on the intricacies of the nerd soul and exploring the complex inner lives of geeks.
